I've literally just been looking at this.

It was a toss up between this and the LG 50PK350
http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/lg-50pk350-50-full-hd-plasma-tv-04877737-pdt.html?srcid=198

Anyone with experience of either?

I know the LG is 1080 whereas the panny is 720 but I dont know if I will use 1080p. I havent got SkyHD and Blu rays/99% of my gaming is played through a projector on the wall.
I may get a Freesat box so there will be ITV & BBC HD to watch, nothing to get excited about though.

Any ideas anyone??

Finally, 3.5% quidco through dixons ;)

Dixons still haven't told me what the warranty is on the 42 inch model. I'm supposing 1 year which is pretty terrible...
#3
I have the 42x20b which is pretty much the same. I have yet to see a better picture on any LCD 1080p TV. The picture on this TV is fantastic. However one small warning- check if this TV has a anti reflection screen filter fitted. If not then it will be like looking into a mirror if you have it in a bright room.

HD channels aren't 1080p anyway....

Exactly, so what other content other than blu ray's use the 1080p signal?


Derriere
. However one small warning- check if this TV has a anti reflection screen filter fitted. If not then it will be like looking into a mirror if you have it in a bright room.


Thanks, I have been checking for this as it could be opposite a window unless if I have a move around.

My neighbour bought one very similar to this just over 2 yrs ago, oh how I am going to enjoy showing this price to him. Especially as he thinks he's TV is still worth about £1k. lol.

Err resolution 1024 x 768. If that's right then its not 720p.

720p is 1280x720 to give a true 16:9 widescreen picture.

If the res is 1024 then the picture might look odd.

If you plan to use it with a blu ray at any point then a tv this big really needs to be 1080.

Hi, I would definitely go for the LG if you can afford it.
#10
Would go for the LG, highly praised!
#11
Will go for the LG. Also, currys will price match my local richersounds and give 10% off, fingers crossed all goes well tomorrow.

True, but I am using my projector for gaming.
Nevermind, I've decided on the LG :)

Thanks for your help.

doesn't look odd at all..1024x768 is standard res for a HD Ready Plasma of this size due to Plasma TV's not using square pixels....

to see 1080i at full resolution you need a 1080p screen.
not saying this will be bad but some seem to think that no 1080p tv broadcasts = no need for 1080p screen.

And most seem to forget that no 1080p broadcasts mean that a 1080p screen will be scaling a non 1080 image more than a HD ready screen...so 99% of the time a HD ready NON 1080p screen will give you a better quality image for non HD broadcasts

the image quality on DVD playback and SD Broadcasts on my HD Ready Panny plasma is laughably better than on any 1080p set ive seen yet.
#16
50" is too big for any house! unless its council owned ;)
#17
At this size the difference between 720p and 1080p would be noticeable, but unless you had a 1080p and 720p TV sets side by side, your eyes and brain do a very good job of not noticing the minute differences.

1080i needs to be upscaled to display on a 1080p or 720p screen. The difference between purely upscaled resolution is minor.

Don't rubbish this deal because its "just 720p" which won't let you see the 1080i broadcasts in full resolution, it will practically be the same. Saying that, I would probably spend a bit more for 1080p at this size.
#18
Go for the LG, picture is far better than this anyway. Don't be fooled by the panny badge, this is no where near as good as their other sets, which are excellent.

oO

Theres no upscaling involved at all. Ever. 1080i gets downscaled to display at 720.
#19
For a 50" TV this is a great price, shows that 50" TV's are the new 42" this year. Only concerns would be the resolution (1024x768) The resolution isn't quite up to scratch. If you want a TV to watch TV ;) then this is perfect, the standard digital resolution is 480p to 526p so this would look very nice with a digibox.
#20
Sorry, its cold from me....its not much of an online bargain, considering you can buy it locally for an extra £10.

But they are 1080i, which takes advantage of 1920 x 1080, 1080p sets.

It's not 720p, it's 768p.

Size alone really has nothing to do with what resolution you need. It's size in relation to viewing distance. 720p is fine on 50" just as 1080p is fine on 22". Basically what you said about a TV this big needs to be 1080 is nonsense. It needs to be what you want it to be in relation to what you are viewing and from what distance.

At any size the difference between 720p and 1080p is noticeable if sat at the correct distance for both sets.

1080i does not need to be upscaled to fit on 1080p TV's they both have the same resolution. Nor does 1080i need to be upscaled for a 720p screen, it needs to be dowscaled.
